Korean govt to develop garment tech centre
Apr '10
Consul General of South Korea in Karachi, In Ki Lee, while addressing a press conference, said that, Korea is planning to establish a Garment Technology Training Centre in Pakistan and for this the Korean government will invest $100 million in the project.

Lee said that, Pakistan is the fourth largest cotton producer across the world and it is thus important for them to develop this centre. Also, Pakistan with its textile industry as a foundation stone of its economy is the twelfth largest exporter of textile products across the globe. Besides this, the country also has to implement certain measures, to ensure that the textile industry continues to grow enormously.

The Pakistani government had urged the Korean government to develop a training centre, which would emphasise on professional training of core engineering in the textile industry.

In 2007 and 2008, the Korea International Cooperation Agency, KOICA, conducted a field study for this purpose, and subsequent to the study, the Korean government decided to support the establishment of the centre.

The training centre for vocational education and technology will be imparting professional training to workers in five areas such as, knitwear technology, apparel marketing, garment technology, line supervision and operating of a sewing machine. This will be done to generate more skilled workers. Manual preparation and hiring professionals for training purpose will also be catered by the centre.

In order to ease access, till the time the Karachi Garment City Project takes form, the training centre will be located in the vicinity of Karachi's industrial area. Administrative staff for the centre and instructors to train the teachers for education and training purposes will be appointed by the Ministry of Textile and Industry.

Besides this, KOICA is to assist in developing the systems for setting up the centre and its management thereafter. Also, it will help the centre in organizing its syllabus while supporting its staff. Furthermore, it is also to equip the centre with equipments necessary for its training purposes.
